At Prosperity Specialty Pharmacy, our team of clinical professionals focuses on the unique needs of cancer patients to help our patients manage their therapy and live active, fulfilling, and productive lives. Our pharmacists have clinical expertise in oncology and understand the difficulties patients may face in dealing with their therapy.
There are many health challenges and complex issues for patients in treating cancer, including medication and side effect management, proper nutrition, rest and exercise. Many of the newer cancer treatments have been developed as oral chemotherapy agents, replacing infused drugs which were traditionally administered in a physician’s office. These treatments offer greater convenience for at-home administration but often require specialized education to effectively deal with side effects, ensure adherence to therapy and obtain clinically desirable outcomes.
Our pharmacists partner with patients, caregivers, and health-care providers to ensure oral chemotherapy agents are taken correctly and that any adverse drug events are recognized and reported immediately.
Through regular contact with our patients, our Clinical Pharmacy Specialists monitors patients for side effects, adherence, and drug interactions throughout their entire course of therapy.
We make it our business to ask patients about their side effects and apprehensions so that we can be of assistance and patients may continue therapy safely and with confidence.
Many of the oncology drugs that we carry are covered by Medicare. Prosperity Specialty Pharmacy files claims to Medicare on behalf of patients. Patients are responsible for the cost not covered by Medicare, if no secondary insurance is available.
